On Thursday, December 4th, employees from Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc., were ‘on campus’ armed with paint brushes, shovels and hammers. Supreme Wizards, Matt Wolff, Michael McDermott, Stephen Spates, Chris Tin and Stefan Feller waved their magic wands over several hours of volunteer service to Academy Schools. The focus of their work was on improving our Physical Education program with upgrades to the school’s community play space, both inside and out.

Because of inclement weather and a shortage of time, a couple projects still need to be completed… Any volunteers out there? A handful of circuit training signs need stenciling and the basketball ‘court’ needs attention. Please let our front office know if you have time to spare. The stenciling can be done at home.

Game on!
